    I was contacted over phone by a recruiting agency. Got an extempore interview call from India at 6:00 am (without prior notification).

      Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary was confirmed with the recruiter and before the interview. But in the offer letter they offered 10k less. They also agreed to provide the relocation assistance. But, after joining, it was found the amount received was about half of the amount offered because, it was issued as advanced salary and income tax was deducted.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Tata Consultancy Services (North America).

    Interview

    Met them at a job fair. First they have a simple skill based test right there (which I kinda bypassed because I just told him what I knew and what I worked on before we got to the questions and he said I was good enough). After that they schedule an on campus interview. After that I got a call a few weeks later telling me I got the job.

    Interview Questions

    • What do you use a switch statement for: I did not know the answer so he asked me another one.

      Say you had user input and you knew that they might enter text instead of a number. How would you handle it.
